Chelsea plotting mass clearout this summer with Fikayo Tomori, Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud

Thomas Tuchel wants to strengthen his European Champions with up to four new additions at striker, centre back, centre midfield and wing-back.

The consequences could see as many as 11 of Chelsea's fringe players leaving this summer, either on loan or permanently.

Sportsmail takes a look at some of the men who could be on their way out of Stamford Bridge including Fikayo Tomori, Olivier Giroud, Tammy Abraham and Ross Barkley.

Fikayo Tomori

A £24million move to AC Milan is being ironed out after his impressive five month loan, the England international centre back has been offered a five year deal by the Italians once the pay structure on his fee can be agreed.

Olivier Giroud

Milan have made contact with the Frenchman’s entourage as he is out of contract next month. Giroud has plenty of Premier League suitors plus ones in Italy and France but at 34 he is looking for a two year deal.

Tammy Abraham

Chelsea are willing to sell for £40m as they look to bring in Romelu Lukaku. A move to Aston Villa was rejected last summer and they will be joined by the likes of West Ham and Wolves this window but price will need to drop.

Christian Pulisic

Not someone Chelsea will be rushing to sell but he wants to figure in games from the start and his frustration at Tuchel’s preference to use him from the bench or as a potential wing-back means the situation will come to a head.

Ross Barkley

Has plenty of talent but lack of consistency and questions about how he looks after himself off the pitch have raised doubts about Barkley’s future under Tuchel. West Ham have an interest but may prefer an initial loan.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Another loan move is not on the cards for the powerful midfielder. If he is not fancied by Thomas Tuchel he will look for a permanent move. Villa, Southampton, Everton have interest but the 25-year old is on high wages.

Billy Gilmour

Chelsea don’t want to sell but the young Scotland midfield maestro needs to play regular football. Southampton saw a loan move fall through in January while Steve Bruce would love him at Newcastle United.

Conor Gallagher

Was one of West Brom’s best performers last season following on from successful loans at Charlton and Swansea. Thomas Tuchel would like to take a closer look at him before making any decision but Crystal Palace would like to sign him now.

Davide Zappacosta

Has one year left on contract and has growing interest from Italy. Atalanta are among the frontrunners as they want an attacking full back to replace Belgian Robin Gosens who has been offered and is admired by a number of English clubs


The 26-year old again has plenty of interest from Italian clubs such as Juventus, Napoli and Inter Milan. Could yet be offered as a makeweight in Chelsea’s pursuit of Lukaku but cash-strapped Inter would prefer deals to be done separately.

Tiemoue Bakayoko

Has one year left on contract and after a number of loans wants a permanent option but his agent has admitted that is proving hard to find. He heads a group including Michy Batshuayi, Danny Drinkwater, Baba Rahman, Kenedy and Spartak Moscow bound Victor Moses who are all set to leave this window. Question marks also remain over the roles of Kurt Zouma and Hakim Ziyech who want more game time.
